Who is the Hong Kong Breast Cancer Registry and what is their relationship to Breast Cancer HK Online?
This site uses statistics provided by the Hong Kong Breast Cancer Registry (BCR).
The BCR was established in 2007 by the Hong Kong Breast Cancer Foundation (HKBCF) and is now the most comprehensive and representative registry on breast cancer in Hong Kong. The territory-wide multi-centre BCR collects data from local breast cancer cases, including risk exposures, disease patterns, treatment trends, clinical outcomes and survival to provide analysis and data that will enable patients, medical professionals and public health policy makers to gauge local breast cancer facts, leading to improved prevention and detection of the disease and treatment and care of breast cancer patients.
The BCR produces an annual “Hong Kong Breast Cancer Registry Report” in September of each year as well as a BCR Bulletin which is published periodically to give in-depth analysis on subjects of interest to supplement the annual report.
